The Best Hawaiian Island for First-Timers video –

Which Hawaiian Island Should You Visit –

The Best Time to Visit Hawaii –


  1. I have been trying to book a reservation for sunrise at Haleakala for a month now for 8/27-9/3 with no luck. Do you know why dates show NOT RELEASED on the website. Thank you.

  2. One thing I love about your videos is you focus on things tourist should be doing and not highlighting secret local spots. Other social influencers are ruining the island, while you show people how to treat it with respect.

  3. We just got back from our Maui-Oahu trip Sunday and stayed at the Four Seasons next door. We definitely will check out the Grand Wailea next time just for that pool alone. Btw, Monkeypod is a spot on dining spot. .

  4. We went on a Kai Kanani trip based on your recommendation from an earlier video back in May and loved it! Living vicariously through you now!

  5. You should show tourists how to use the Tommy Bahama umbrella and chairs. Lol. Everyone I see on the beach struggles with them.

  6. That restaurant looked pretty empty. You had mentioned that restaurants are packed right now because everyone is vacationing again, is that not the case anymore? Are there a lot of empty restaurants like that avaliable for walk ins?

  7. Please stop vlogging about maui and encouraging tourist to come in the island at this time of pandemic. We have alot of cases again and locals can’t even enjoy eating at their favorite restaurant or enjoy the beaches because its full and crowded. Even school opening this year isn’t sure to open or they will do distance learning again. Your vlog is important to you but please do something for the community if you’re a true local. Protect are kupuna first and our children. Stop encouraging tourist to come here during this time. Mahalo.

  8. Molokini – for seeing tourists butts and puke fish – have fun with that! Night diving the backside is the REAL experience!

  9. My wife and I were there last week (7.19.2021) for a couples massage…….I have never had a massage and it was awesome!!! If you go, ask for Tina, she was really respectful of the fact that it was my first massage and made it really enjoyable.
    We have also had the brunch that they offer and can recommend that as well, it is pricey, but the food is excellent and the view is even better!!!

  10. If you guys had to choose either Queen Kapiolani Or Aston wich one would you choose. Or do you have any better ideas that are affordable like these 2…

  11. We love Grand Wailea. Stay there several times. Love your travel guide. Nice drone shots of the beach. Are you launching them from the beach? I found drones very restricted in Maui.

  12. You look so pretty in your sun dress! And that Mai tai yum! Because of your suggestion we went on the Kai Kanani, AMAZING! Totally recommend. Thanks for all your help to make our Hawaii islands vacations awesome.

  13. Going To Maui next week and did most of our planning using your adventure itinerary guide! Awesome stuff! We are super excited!

  14. Great video, thank you so much. We are staying in Grand Wailea in September. Quick question: do you recommend their Luau or should we look into some other Luau?

  15. We were randomly upgraded from the most inexpensive room type to one of their Napua Club level huge suites. I told my husband we will never be able to go back because the bar was set so high 😂 it’s wonderful though! Hope to return someday!

  16. Oh my goodness Henry is so precious!! “Lazy river Mommy” 🥰 Feel free to have more staycations and take us along!!

  17. My favorite hotel to stay with the kiddos!! Its luxurious, food is great! And the slides are so much fun 😊 we will be back this September!

  18. Nice job guy’s, well done 👍 I’ve heard from friends it could use a bit of a face lift . But besides that what a great location , thanks guy’s 👍🇨🇦❤️

  19. Looks like so much fun! Our trip to Maui has been postponed for two years now. Hopefully summer of 2022 will work! We were looking to stay on Kaanapali Beach, but this looks wonderful too! What would you recommend between the two beaches?

  20. Thanks for the content! I planned my Oahu trip in March based on your videos. Planning a trip now to Kaua’i and Maui in November. Your videos are so fun and informative!!

  21. Thanks for another video! When I began watching over a year ago I never thought I would ever try any of the adventures you videoed, but now I’m all in on every thing once we get moved. ❤️🙏❤️

  22. Figured it was early in year you went there- place was empty! That must have been nice. I am sure it’s not like that anymore. At least it wasn’t the last time I was there. Nice to see Molokini Crater, I never get tired of that place. Although, going to the backside is reason enough to become a certified diver. The shark “cleaning station” is fantastic to behold! Great channel guys!
